Animaniacs' 'Yakko's World' Sounds Even Zanier When Sung by 168 Movies

For those who were kids in the 90s, and just about everybody else, The Animaniacs was more than just a cartoon show. It was an education in adult jokes (the “fingerprints” gag in particular is a modern classic), what it meant to be zany to the max, and, of course, world geography. The “Yakko’s World” song taught us not only about the names of every single country across the globe, but how to sing them really, really fast.

Turns out, “Yakko’s World” is even more significant than we thought. In this YouTube video from Unusual Suspect, 168 of your favorite movies have been moved to join in the fun, courtesy of an extremely impressive supercut. Scarface, Zoolander, The Santa Clause, Coming to America, and many more old and slightly-less-old movies, urged along by Rick Moranis as Dark Helmet in Spaceballs.

It’s yet another testament to how awesome Wakko, Yakko, and Dot are, which makes us cross our fingers even more that we could get a revival of the series in the future. In the meantime, at least we get a good education. You can check out the video below.

Doesn’t take away from the song but:

Sumatra (Indonesian: Sumatera) is a large island in western Indonesia that is part of the Sunda Islands.

Indonesia being the country, Sumatra an island in Indonesia. (0ne of 13,000+)

I’ll put it down to poetic license.
